Assistant Professor of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Epidemiology, Jaclyn White Hughto led a study that found that frequent exposure to negative depictions of transgender people in the media was significantly associated with clinical symptoms of depression, anxiety, global psychological distress, and post-traumatic stress disorder in this population.

Study is believed to be the first of its kind to explore the effects of exposure to negative transgender-related media across a range of platforms on transgender people.
